Russian River and Sierra Nevada Brux

Appearance: orange, large head, and some lacing.

Smell: sweet tart sourness, slight yeast, and a few fruit notes.

Taste: very light sourness, pear, lemon, and a light yeast.

Mouthfeel: medium and carbonated.

Overall:
This is an interesting brew. The smell dictates a sour wild ale, but it seems more like a saison. It seems tad watery in the finish.

Picked up the last bottle on the shelf because of Russian Rivers reputation despite the price ($16.00). Bottle opened with a pop like champange which kind of startled me. Very effervescent with a head that quicky disolved. Smell reminded me of my trip to Belgium especially the tour of the Cantillon Brewery. Very tart, dry but interesting taste. Enjoyable but I did not feel it was worth the price. Based on other reviews, I would pick up a another bottle at a reasonable price point and store it for a year.
